Djokovic to make Eastbourne debut

Novak Djokovic will make his first appearance at the Aegon International as he prepares for the 2017 Wimbledon Championships. 

The Serb has endured a troubling year, slipping from world number one to number four after reaching just two finals and claiming one title. 

Now, after firing his coaching staff, he will get his grass court season underway at the London event, which also feature the likes of Gael Monfils and John Isner.

"I am looking forward to fine-tuning my grass court game ahead of Wimbledon," said the 12-time Grand Slam winner, who earned a wildcard entry into the tournament. 
"This will be my first trip to Eastbourne, I have heard great things about the tournament."
